First Light jaime gisbert
jaime gisbert

light’s slow dispersion 

the sun crosses the threshold

a naked tree warms

“First light … can be pointing to the departing of winter and the start of spring, but it also can point to the beauty of the first light on a cold winter morning … Or, not especially for winter, the first light that children see as they are born … looks more like spring, new start, new beginnings and so on, but … it can be used also in that way.

winter morning
the fragile light of the sun
reflects in the snow

a cold moonlit night
just the sound of fresh fallen snow –
wandering over the moors

I have been writing all my life but for the most part, it has been a secret. My parents did not believe writing was a good way to earn money so I hid my poems. Then one day, I wanted to comment on an essay that a friend had written and found myself with a blog. That quiet whisper inside said, "You can write your poetry and no one will ever know.". I knew nothing of followers and the like at that time. So, here I am trying to learn my craft and enjoying every moment of it. My personal details are, I'm 57, married for 39 years, have one grown son who is God's gift to us and last but not least at all, I'm a Baha'i which basically means that I love all humanity.

  1. oh my what a poem. I can see the sun gilding the ground and feel its warmth on that grateful tree… the tree is grateful right? I mean it would have to be since it’s naked and now warming up right? Or am I reading too much into this? I have a habit of writing into your lovely poetic gaps! 🙂

  2. it looks like to me one of the desert cousins to tolkien’s tree beings, the ents, old and gnarly, but very much alive and very wise. a tad slow, but that’s ok….;-).
